Thieves in the field –

First, let me express how unnecessary it is to tell emerging adults that nature is important.

When I saw the plans For a ski resort with snow cannons, a playground and six-metre-wide roads in Strindamarca, I thought this was too stupid to be true. I went to Stendhal Primary School and Huygen High School myself, and we made all our trips here, summer and winter. But it doesn't matter where on earth I spent my childhood, neither for the nature and animals there nor for those who use the area today. Nor should it be necessary to play on emotions, for example, by telling us how excited and adventurous my son was when he got to see the area around the frog pond for the first time. Because you all understand this.

But the burden of proof is clearly on On people like me every time plans are made to destroy nature. Or, people like me… We're all people like me who appreciate a walk in the woods, you might say. Yes, but the difference is that I do not require this nature to be changed or damaged in order for me to adapt to my way of using it. The question should not be why we should keep the territory as it is, rather it should be: Why do some people think they have a very special right to steal land for themselves?

jobs and money, These are usually the arguments in favor of destroying nature and cultivating the land. But now skiing has become organized. Because it's not all skiers – my family and I also love to go skiing when the winter snow falls on its own. We're the type of skiers who look for snow. We don't ask for snow to come to us. At least not when we ourselves helped change the climate so that the conditions no longer exist.

Clearly the burden of proof falls on people like me every time plans are made to destroy nature, writes Lillian Sunde.

Skiing in Lohof is a bad idea

They started to be confused. Are they trying to conserve energy?

Misinformation from the headline commentator on Vogelmira

It is certain It is very far from Granåsen and there is very little snow and it is difficult to recruit new skiers on the east side of town. But how important is skating everywhere? Does a person have the right to go skiing when there is no snow? Is skiing more important than world, state and municipal climate goals? I don't care that they did what's called “downsizing plans.” There are quite minor cutbacks, and it's not legal to rob the bank “a little” rather than a lot. However, having a playground in this area will ruin the way everyone enjoys the playground. If it's difficult to ski where you live, you can actually go where there is snow and slopes, or find another sport.

Should we tear? City Hall and building an artificial beach and lagoon with wind machines because my kids are watching Home and Away and want to surf? No, we won't do that. Do we have to heat Rotvollfjæra in November because we want to swim and it's unfair that the water gets cold? no.

Another argument Of the sports teams there may have been some who “promised” them. That they had worked on the plans for so long that they were disappointed and felt cheated. Does anyone know how long people have worked to protect nature? Cultivate the land? How many times have promises been broken, houses built, windmills and platforms erected despite the vast amount of knowledge that says we have reached our limit? How many times have people alerted a poor endangered bird to try to preserve this piece of nature for a little longer? Every little Tuesday you manage to save is temporary. Every battle lost by nature is lost forever. And by the way, climate reports show that we are at risk of extinction if we continue like this. Would it be helpful to put ourselves on the red list?

We have a common right in Norway. It is based on the Outdoor Activities Act, which states, among other things, that we must “protect the natural basis of outdoor life” so that “the opportunity for outdoor living is provided as a means of promoting health, creating well-being and preserving the environment.” Friendly recreational activity is maintained and promoted.”

The stadium facility will take this away from us immediately. We want to arrange nature to death.

But the law does not give us legal protection, because nature cannot act on its own account. I and all who object to these plans are, therefore, representatives of human nature. But so are you, politicians.

Then came Haakon Bleiken

Is sports really for everyone?

The harsh reality is that most people are likely to end up poor

We are fully dependent Our politicians take responsibility. The global climate and nature crisis requires all of us to take responsibility at the local level. Where else should we take responsibility, really? Caring for the nature we manage is fundamental to our existence. It can't be said that skiing is more important than that.

this is the reason My suggested solutions:

Set up free shuttle buses to Granåsen, Vassfjellet etc. on days when skiing is actually possible.

  • Protect the Earth forever so that we don't have to fight again and again, and prioritize nature first in all matters.

  • Look for new sports that do not depend on the weather in a time of apparent climate change.

  • Sports teams must become climate activists to save some of the snow they depend on.

  • Those who don't want to become climate activists can board a demonstration train, chain themselves in front of the town hall and stop morning traffic on the Elgister Bridge with posters saying “We will destroy nature!” Then they can see how popular they are.

  • It should become easier for citizens to understand how the process works in such cases, and how and when you can influence.

Natural crisis It concerns us all. Recently, we were able to read in the NRK report “Norway in Red, White and Grey” how we burn our light in this country in a thousand ways. You can't pretend you don't know.
